Ristocratic woman who can enter her dreams a secret training facility where children are transformed into deadly fighters and a conspiracy vast than she ever could have imaginedFilled with characters both fascinating and fantastical The Rook is a richly inventive suspenseful and often wry thriller that marks an ambitious debut from a promising young writer. Honest to god I m both confused that I m still reading this book and appalled at how highly rated it seems to be everywhere The praise this book has been getting got me interested in reading it and within a few chapters I had to wonder if there was some massive conspiracyTo put it uite simply the book has an intriguing premise that s destroyed by a hackneyed writing style a juvenile approach to character and a narrative that is grossly overshadowed by the writer s apparently high opinion of his own talents The main character is not even remotely likeable When she s not being a high school prom ueen regularly calling technical people nerds repeatedly criticizing the dress sense of the former occupant of her body she s delivering oh snap wisecracks She s just strong enough to take command of a situation when a story needs it but also nicely feminine enough to need to be rescued She confronts the leader of the enemy forces and her primary concern is the gross Engendering Song uite simply the book has an intriguing premise that s destroyed by a hackneyed writing style a juvenile approach to character and a narrative that is grossly overshadowed by the writer s apparently high opinion of his own talents The main character is not even remotely likeable When she s not being a high school prom Listening Woman by Tony Hillerman Summary & Study Guide ueen regularly calling technical people nerds repeatedly criticizing the dress sense of the former occupant of her body she s delivering oh snap wisecracks She s just strong enough to take command of a situation when a story needs it but also nicely feminine enough to need to be rescued She confronts the leader of the enemy forces and her primary concern is the gross
